The KSOCA is deeply saddened by the loss of fellow Kytherian John "Yiannis” Sofios. John passed away on April 9, 2018.  Johns family was from Logothetianika, Kythera. Many may recall in the early 1970s John and his brother Ted opened O Aetos Taverna in the former post office in Berkeley where they taught Greek dance lessons.

John was a kind soul who will always be remembered by his infectious smile and hearty laugh. He will be dearly missed by all.
